Sammy Davis, Jr.That's All! ... LP
Reprise, 1966. Very Good 2LP Gatefold ... $3.99
The greatest entertainer ever? We think so – and this 2LP set offers Sammy D in the best possible way to get him: live, and in the very familiar turf of the Sands Hotel. This live album, and it's counterpart (At The Cocoanut Grove, also on Reprise) are, in our opinion, Sammy's best recordings – because they feature him ripping through a bunch of material, doing lots of great impressions and medleys, and really swinging with a tight little combo led by Michael Silva, the drummer. The groove is really jazzy – way jazzier than on some of Sammy's studio LPs from the time – and he runs through a range of material from pop tunes to standards, done in a style that's far different than you'd expect for the titles. The vocals are tight, heartfelt, but also given a professional little finesse that really makes them sparkle. Titles include "Ain't I", "Another Spring", "On A Clear Day", "As Long As She Needs Me", "Any Place I Hang My Hat Is Home", "The Lady Is A Tramp", and 2 fantastic medleys with lots of jazzy songs. Heck, Dean Martin never got a chance to cut a double live album – and Frank really ever did one – so given that Sammy got a chance to do two of them, you've gotta figure the format really worked for him! This is the real Mr. Entertainment, and you owe it to yourself to hear him as he really was. LP, Vinyl record album
(Original mono pressing. Cover has some ring & edge wear, a bit of aging inside the gatefold, and some splitting on the top seams.)

Mel TormeMel Torme & The Marty Paich Dek-Tette ... LP
Bethlehem, Mid 50s. Very Good- ... $13.99
An incredible album from Mel Torme – easily his best set ever, and a record that helped raise the bar for all other singers back in the 50s! A key part of the success of the set is the presence of Marty Paich as an arranger – as Marty swings the whole thing with a fluid groove that's really amazing, and which is a style that hadn't ever been done on record this well before. The group is filled with hip west coast players like Pete Candoli, Jack Montrose, Bob Cooper, and Bud Shank – all of whom really soar together, and elevate Mel's vocals from the older velvet fog mode, into a leaner, hipper style that's really tremendous! Titles include "The Blues", "The Lady Is A Tramp", "Lulu's Back In Town", "The Carioca", "Sing For Your Supper", and "Lullaby Of Birdland". LP, Vinyl record album
(Red label Bethlehem pressing with deep groove! Cover has a bit of aging, some light wear, a small split on the top seam, and light staining along the opening.)

The greatest entertainer ever? We think so – and this CD offers Sammy D in the best possible way to get him: live, and in the very familiar turf of the Sands Hotel.

New Richard HarrisWebb Sessions – 1968-1969 ... CD
Raven, Late 60s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Pretty stunning work from the team of Richard Harris & Jimmy Webb – a shining point in both of their careers! Harris wasn't much of a singer, and was mostly known as an actor before these two albums. He teamed up with Jimmy Webb as the perfect foil for some of Webb's late sixties song-stories – crafted here into extended arrangements penned and conducted by Webb, who was just a wee lad at the time. The CD features 2 different albums – A Tramp Shining and The Yard Went On Forever – both of which became genre-busting superhits, and pretty much burned out the career of both parties involved! The highlight here is the original 7 minute version of "MacArthur Park", but there's loads of other tracks that are great too – and titles include "The Hive", "That's The Way It Was", "Didn't We", "Name Of My Sorrow", "In The Final Hours", "A Tramp Shining", "If You Must Leave My Life", and "The Yard Went On Forever". CD also features the track "One Of The Nicer Things" – previously only issued on a single! CD

New Ella FitzgeraldBest Of The BBC Vaults (CD/DVD) ... CD
Verve, 1965/1974/1977. New Copy CD & DVD ... Out Of Stock
A lost chapter of genius from the legendary Ella Fitzgerald – music that goes beyond her Verve, Reprise, and Pablo albums of the 60s and 70s – and which is pulled from a host of rare performances recorded by the BBC! The package features both video and audio presentation of the music – although the DVD has a lot more tracks than the CD, due to its greater size – which makes for a heck of a lot of work bundled into one sweet set! Recordings are pulled from a 1965 appearance on Show Of The Week, and a special Ella Fitzgerald Sings set from the same year – as well as a televised 1977 performance of Jazz At Montreux, and a 1974 Omnibus presentation of Ella Fitzgerald at Ronnie Scotts. DVD features 34 tracks, CD features 17 – and titles include "The Girl From Ipanema", "That Old Black Magic", "Gloomy Sunday", "Don't Rain On My Parade", "Cheek To Cheek", "The Lady Is A Tramp", "Manhatta", "Mack The Knife", and "Good Morning Heartache".

New Gloria StewardJazz For Dancing ... LP
Elite Special/Sonorama (Germany), Early 60s. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
A rare set from Gloria Steward – a singer who seems to be American, but who's recording here in a rare Swiss session from the 60s – with backing from a very groovy small combo! The lineup features some great vibes from Manfred Burzlaff, whose ringing tones make for a slightly different vocal set than usual – a bit looser, and not as much the straight piano date you'd expect – although there is some nice piano on the record too, courtesy of Bob Degen. The tunes are mostly standards, but Gloria swings them with a sweet soulful undercurrent – in ways that make the record come across with the same charms you'd get from an early 60s record by Teri Thornton or Pat Bowie. Titles include "Get Out Of Town", "Day In Day Out", "By Myself", "The Lady Is A Tramp", "One Note Samba", and "They Can't Take That Away From Me". LP, Vinyl record album
